Dr Dave Van Nuys of the excellent Shrink Rap Radio is doing a series of podcasts on dreaming.
One of his guests, Robert Hoss, presented a method of dream interpretation that allowed you to find out the meaning of your dreams without having to look at one of those so called ‘dream dictionaries’. Normally I’m not very interested in dream work because people seem to rush to find out what someone else thinks a dream means.
HELLO! The dream is yours, not theirs!
In contrast, his approach is based on Gestalt methods, using six questions to allow access to the meaning of components of the dream. This process seems to give a simple and elegant way to find out from the dream itself what it is trying to tell you rather than interpret it’s ‘standard’ meaning.

After looking at his website http://www.dreamsience.org I found that he is also interested in Energy Psychology techniques including EFT.
He has combined his approach to working with dreams and using EFT into a process, modestly entitled The Dream-to-Freedom(tm) Technique. This is an interesting approach I’m looking forward to trying out.
His website has a wealth of articles and information related to dreams and dreaming, well worth investigating if you are a ‘bit of a dreamer’.
